If you, like me, were too busy hob-knobbing with the elite to visit CES2006 this year, have no fear! Google Video has your hook-up for checking out Honda’s presentation of Asimo. Close to ten minutes of cheesy dialog and music give you a pretty good idea of how amazing this robot is. He maintains his balance on a moving platform, does a 360 degree turn on a inclined surface, and does some amazing stair-stepping (with full length strides).
Conclusion? Honda engineers == awesome. Honda script writers == terrible.
